Day 2 of interrogating the real

I decided to bring in photos that both had a complementary colour palette and that had a relaxed social subject matter, to continue on what I had started on the first day. I did experimental sketches and manipulated the photograph through rephotographing with acetate partially or fully created a filter over the original image. This was to further distance the viewer and create some surreal results. It was one shape in particular that stood out, my granddads elbow was accidentally contorted in the photo and the effect made the elbow look like an indistinguishable body part. I will go home and continue to find similarities to this to show that photography ( despite seeming factual) can often misrepresent the truth.
